A mobile rock crusher is a portable crushing plant designed to break down large stones, rocks, and ores into smaller sizes and shapes to be used for urban construction projects. These versatile machines have wide applications in various industries like mining, recycling, quarrying, infrastructure demolition, etc. Hence, mobile rock crushers are becoming popular and are preferred by companies over stationary plants due to their numerous benefits. In this blog, we’ll discuss some of its performance advantages to guide you before purchasing.
The crushing unit mounted on a wheeled, or tracked chassis is portable and can easily be moved from one site to another for different operations. It is possible because such mobile crushers have a short wheelbase and a small turning radius. Hence, the machine will not be fixed throughout the project and can be taken to multiple operation areas.
A mobile rock crusher has the flexibility to be combined with other equipment to support the requirements of different crushing applications. For example, it can be configured with multiple types of crushing chambers (jaw, impact, or cone crusher), vibrating screens, and conveyor belts according to the needs of the crushing process.
Unlike stationary plants, a mobile rock crusher is adaptable because it can easily be transported to multiple remote locations and rough terrains. The design, function, and process of the machine can be customized, and it can be changed into a two or three-stage crushing and screening system according to client requirements.
Low Transportation Cost
Since a mobile crusher can be moved closest to the production site, there will be no need to take the material away to a new site for crushing or processing. Thus it reduces the material transportation cost.
Energy-Saving and Environment Friendly
Mobile rock-crushing plants use diesel-electric engines to reduce environmental footprint and fuel consumption. Some rock crushers are powered by solar or wind renewable energy, while others use energy-efficient advanced control systems, making them environmentally friendly.
The mobile crushing units have operation safety features to protect workers from hazards and accidents. For example, emergency machine stop switches, safety curtains, or barriers to prevent workers from getting injured.
Easy to Use and Maintain
The crushing units have simple controls that are easy to operate. Its components can quickly be disassembled and removed for routine maintenance, repair, replacement of worn parts (filters or belts), and machine inspection. This reduces downtime and alerts operators of potential issues.
Mobile crushers have a highly reliable performance because it uses top-quality and highly efficient crushing equipment. Since the crushing plants undergo regular maintenance and cleaning and are operated in ideal environmental conditions, they produce constructive outputs.
Direct and Effective Operation
The mobile rock crushing stations can be moved directly to the job site, hence they can be used directly and independently for processing. The crushing and screening are carried out effectively due to its flexible and energy-efficient design.
